The Long Duddon is a classic fell race covering 18 miles around the head of the Duddon Valley with 6000ft of climb over Harter, Hardknott, Little Stand, Swirl How, Dow Crag, White Pike and Caw. The Short Duddon is run at the same time over a 10 mile course with 3000 feet of climb up Dow and Caw. They are based at the Newfield Inn in Seathwaite (Duddon, not Borrowdale) and are supported by the pub and Black Combe Runners. Both are category A fell races so navigational ability, proper kit and some idea of what you're doing are all essential.
There is no entry on the day this year for either of the races. Registration will be open from 9am. Please be in good time and allow 10 minutes to get across the river to the start of the long race at 11am. The short race will then start behind the pub at 11:30.
